I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 13
1 ¶ Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 ¶ Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 ¶ Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Love is patient and kind.
Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
Love does not demand its own way.
Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.
It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
Love will last forever, but prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will all disappear.
Now we know only a little, and even the gift of prophecy reveals little! But when the end comes, these special gifts will all disappear.
It’s like this: When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child does. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. Now we see things imperfectly as in a poor mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God knows me now.
There are three things that will endure – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love.
Do you ever wonder if you really love Gods way .. I mean look .. He loves us more than we can even think or imagine he set us guide lines ..
Do you love like he told us to .. My Children get upset with me as I look for good in everyone usually you can find it .. Not always I have
found out lately some are just a person appearing as a angel but they are really dark .. and are sent to hinder you ..We have to be-careful
but if you love like God loves you look for that glimmer of hope in a person .. I have learned to look past the outer shell .. If a person is
hurting people its usually because they have been hurt and have not forgiven .. it festers .. and it will ruin you .. If you forgive a person
they may stay the same but it changes you .. It gets it out of you so you do not become hard and bitter .. I never want to get like that ..
I can honestly say I know of nobody I have not forgiven .. if its there I don't know it .. I have forgiven all who have hurt me .. I am working
hard on not looking back .. I only look forward to what is coming .. I can do that because I know who hold my future and it is God .. I am born
again so we have so much to look forward to .. Walking each day and Talking to our best friend Jesus .. Search your heart for your sake .. If
you don't love like God loves ask him .. he will do it for you .. but you have to let go of this world and put your hope and dreams on a life
with Jesus Wow huh I cant think of nothing better .. God loves you and so do I .. have a Awesome day .. and Bless someone today .. A smile ..
